You don’t need to feel like a leader to register for your Gold Level of VIP, but we are confident you’ll feel like one when you finish!

VIP Gold is a significant commitment and is the only level that has the option of being completed over two semesters.

At this level we introduce a Leadership Development requirement, to prepare Gold participants to take on the leadership of the Platinum Level.

Gold Participants are also required to have a reference letter included as part of their package which should be from someone who can serve as a reference of how one has demonstrated and/or developed leadership skills, has been/become an integral part of an event/organization, and how a participant would be someone who truly deserved to receive the gold award.


Check List

Remember that all forms are due back to the SVB by the last day of classes in the semester in which you are completing the VIP!
